You've heard the phrase "Boston Strong". This community has been through more than its fair share of events, both manmade and natural, that have tested the resolve and fortitude of the people living here. Yet they also come through with a smile and a can do attitude.
Part of the reason Boston is Boston Strong is because we know when you've got to do a job, you need the right tools and equipment. Let's take the job of keeping your home warm, dry and comfortable. To make that happen, you need a good roof - and to have a good roof, you want to talk to your Boston roofing contractor about asphalt shingles.
9 out of 10 residential properties in the Boston region have asphalt shingle roofing. There's a reason for this. Our local weather conditions can be tough. Winters bring heavy, heavy snow and frigid temperatures. Summers are sweltering hot. Asphalt shingles are built to stand up to this range of extremes for decades of wear. They're budget friendly, which means families on a budget can continue to afford to do all the things they love to do without having to pinch pennies.
Another reason asphalt shingles are popular in the Boston area is the fact they come in a variety of colors. Each manufacturer has their own suite of asphalt shingle colors available, but the majority offer at least some form of black, brown, green, white and red. The color of your roof has a huge impact on the overall look of your home. It's well worth the time to consider what color roof you'd like to have. We recommend that prior to selecting a roof color, homeowners take a trip around the Boston area and see how that color actually looks on houses in the community. In some cases, this will cement your commitment to the new color choice, while in other circumstances you may decide you'd like something else.
